You have a plenty of them.

% ls -d /usr/ports/www/netscape*
/usr/ports/www/netscape-remote         /usr/ports/www/netscape48-communicator
/usr/ports/www/netscape-wrapper        /usr/ports/www/netscape48-navigator
/usr/ports/www/netscape47-communicator /usr/ports/www/netscape7

As far as I see none of them has OS version dependency.
